Here we go again with color blocking, the Spring/Summer 2011 trend that juxtaposes contrasting hues. But with her S/S 2013 graduate collection, fashion designer Emily Seul Ki Uhm adds some geometric and decorative variations to the theme.

The title of the collection is eloquent enough: “Visual Illusion Through Textile”. Classic shapes like long coats with a masculine cut become gowns thanks to small but intense structural manipulations of the textiles: fine cuffs, transparent veils and textures with an ironic touch. 

The collection is based on daring combinations of various bright tones and movement is given by stripes, polka dots and checkered patterns in relief that subdue the rigid geometries of the garments though still creating a minimalist look. 

Born and raised in Seoul, Emily Seul Ki Uhm recently completed her Master’s in Fashion Design & Technology at London College of Fashion, after having graduated from School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC). 

This collection was presented at the runway show “Poemtry” on 2/2/2012 at Victoria and Albert Museum in London, where it was particularly lauded for the work on the fabrics, which give rhythm to the tactile perception of the surfaces and volumes.
